I did some research and talking to a bmw repair shop in my area. The mechanic believes it's the kick down cable. Next up is adjusting or replacing it.

This car was posted on eBay about 2 weeks ago and the bid ended between $6500 and $7200. $3500 is not bad. That's below the trade in value regardless how rich or poor the condition.

My new E39

Well I came across a deal I couldn't refuse. And the outcome was a fast ride home and new tie rods as the first DIY job and newer wheels to make her stand out.
